My husband and I are a partnership - we both work in the business and receive an income tax return.  I have enrolled online for Job Keeper, not sure If i've done so correctly?  Can we both claim for the payment?  Please a proper answer, I have read Sole Traders and Other Entities and still can't find an answer to my question.

Only one partner can get it, because there can only be one eligible business participant.

 

Can more than one eligible business participant be nominated by an entity?  

  • No. Only one eligible business participant can be nominated. This means that a business entity must choose which eligible business participant to nominate, and that entity is only entitled to one JobKeeper payment per fortnight.
